The information requested, where possible, has been provided in the attached table. The total number of pre-sentence reports produced for eligible offenders over the last few years correlates with the fall in overall offenders in the criminal justice system.

The breakdowns requested in HL6522 are not available due to differences in offence recording in the database. The breakdown for possession of weapons, public order offences and summary non-motoring requested in HL6525 are also not available. Otherwise, the table covers all of the offences categories, with theft labelled as ‘theft and handling’.
